Syn Free Sausage Casserole | Slimming World Recipe




The best thing about a casserole is you can usually bung anything into it.. any extra vegetables you have lurking around just chuck it all in.. remember it’s all about “Speed” 😉 I am always struggling with Slimming World meal ideas but I do love a good casserole. When Slimming World finally released some Syn free sausages I was made up! Finally a good old Sausage casserole 😉 This recipe will serve 2 people.

Ingredients

6 Slimming world pork sausages
3 Carrots (or you could use tinned/frozen)
1 Small leek
5 Tbsp frozen peas
3 Large Mushrooms
1/2 A large onion
1 Tbsp chopped parsley
1/2 Tsp dried mixed herbs
1 Garlic clove (or 1 Tsp garlic granules)
1 x 400g Chopped tomatoes
200ml Vegetable stock
Salt and Pepper
Frylight

Method:

1.  Finely chop carrots and leek and par boil them for 4-5 minutes.
2. Slice mushrooms and finely chop onion.
3. Spray a little Frylight into a non stick pan and cook your onion in the garlic for a few minutes. Add the sausages and brown them.
4. Make up 200ml of vegetable stock.
5. Add sausages, carrot, mushroom, leek, peas, sausages, parsley, dried mix herbs, parsley, pinch of salt and pepper, chopped tomatoes and vegetable stock into a casserole dish.
6. Cover and baked in the oven for 50-60 minutes on 180c ensuring the sausages are cooked.

Alternatively you can use the slow cooker  3-4 hours on high or 5-6 hours on low. Ensure sausages are cooked through before serving.

This can also be frozen in batches.

Other great vegetables to add are sweetcorn, potatoes, sweet potato, butternut squash, celery, cauliflower, broccoli, swede.

If you don’t already have a slow cooker I HIGHLY recommend this amazing slow cooker from Crock Pot.

The best thing about the CSC026 Crock-Pot slow cooker is the saute pan which can even be used on an induction hob and stored in fridge or freezer too.

I will be honest the main reason I went for this slow cooker is because I wanted it to fit in with our White/Grey kitchen theme but it turns out it really is an amazing product.

My old slow cooker was cheap and didn’t even have a timer on it. It’s definitely worth paying a little extra for a quality classy looking product.

It’s great for creating loads of wonderful Slimming World recipes and saves so much time when cooking.

When I cook I always substitute oil with Frylight 1 Cal Spray. This spray is Syn free and it’s a HUGE healthy alternative to oil. I find the cheapest place to purchase this from is Home Bargains as its always on offer at around £1.45. But often it’s on offer in Iceland and other Supermarkets.

SW sausages




Okay I may be a bit behind.. I know these came out ages ago.. but I have only just had the chance to try them (yes they have been in the freezer for ages).

The first thing I noticed about them when opening the packet was the smell..a strong herby smell but I gave them a go anyway.

I chose to cook them in the oven on 180c for 25 minutes. But you can also grill them.

After cooking I was pleasantly surprised that they had not shriveled up too much like some other brands. But the amount of fat and water that came out of them was a bit of a shock.

The actual taste is okay, but they don’t really taste like a sausage. They taste more like a meatball and have the consistency of a cheap burger. Would I have them again? At £3 for 6 sausages probably not… but if they were on offer I may consider it.

They are fab in my amazing Sausage casserole recipe though.
